It is very difficult to provide accurate answer to this question. The answer could vary from country to country. It also could also vary from person to person. There are just too many specifics. Yet, here is a reasonably decent summary that is applicable to most nations without exemption. Those who are flying from Dubai need to apply for an Online Italian Visa Application from Dubai. 

You can get the Italy Visa application form from the website easily. There is a list of mandatory documents for applying for an Italy Visa Online:

• Italy Visa application form (back to back printed or pasted, should be as a booklet) completely and legibly filled and signed by the applicant with recent photographs. This can be available online.

It should have original signature and original stamp from the insurance company (this is applied for all online insurance cases also).

• Travel itineraries: with travel dates mentioning if any other country/countries are to be covered during the entire trip. Please provide domestic tickets if departure from India is from a different city

• Covering letter from applicant explaining purpose of the visit and professional status of applicant.

Whether you are from Dubai, China, Russia or Vietnam, you need to download the Italy Visa application form, fill it and submit it with rest of the documents.

Once, you have paid the visa fees, you need to track the visa process via agency website, email or SMS. Then, you can collect the passport when the passport is made available at agency office or your correspondence address.
